Quotes From Katie Holmes

"It's kind of fun being the cute, little one. In fact, I'm finding it hard to grow out of that."

"I know this sounds dorky, but I'm always having this out-of-body experience with my career. I can't wait to write it down. I can't wait to tell my grandchildren. It's amazing."

"My family always keeps me in check. I have three older sisters, and they work their butts off. They're all very supportive of my career, but I know what's really important is kids and family."
